Company Description

Ostays (previously O Hotel Suites) is bridging the gap between the sharing economy and the traditional hotel. We take inventory from condo owners, investment pools, and property developers, and we brand, list, manage, and market our owners inventory across multiple platforms. We have also built many integrations to provide the same experience as a hotel - car service, room service, concierge service, and more.

Company Mission is standardizing the sharing economy by providing a brand and a platform that will allow any income property to operate like a hotel by leveraging existing micro services within sharing economy.
